Who Knows How Long

We do not see our signs;
There is no longer any prophet;
Nor is there any among us who knows how long.
O God, how long will the adversary reproach? ...
Remember this, that the enemy has reproached, O LORD,
And that a foolish people has blasphemed Your name.
Oh, do not deliver the life of Your turtledove to the wild beast! ...
God is my King from of old,
Working salvation in the midst of the earth.
(Psalms 74:9-10,18-19,12 NKJV)

"And you will be hated by all for My name's sake... These are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled... Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near." (Luke 21:17,22,28 NKJV)

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty...
He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge;
His truth shall be your shield and buckler...
"Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him."
(Psalms 91:1,4,14-15 NKJV)

Many Christians express anxiety about eroding freedom and morality. Indeed, the fabric of our nation's strength lies in the power of Judeo-Christian faith which gave rise to a document named The Constitution. Increasingly, the Constitution is a piece of paper to be flushed away with its stench of faith, or burned like a flag stained red with blood which bought liberty.

Is this the beginning of the end? God alone is He who knows how long til the end, and if the USA's demise means the collapse of all religious liberty which will mark ascent to power of the beast. But when the end does come, will it look much different from the current state of affairs?

Whether foreboding clouds on the horizon dispel or gather into a storm, they cannot overshadow those who dwell in the shadow of the Almighty, who set their love upon Him, who know and call upon His name—whom He is with "in trouble" and promises to answer, deliver and honor.

Oh God, my King from of old, no ruler of this world can stand against You. Your truth is our shield. Let our loving confidence be set upon You alone. Surely deliverance always comes by bloodshed. Please give us courage to not count our blood precious in the days of Your final deliverance.
